in colorado and nevada but not without risk. in 2005 a trained firearm's instructor died trying to stop a gunman in texas. in tacoma an armed sis seven was injured while confronting a shopping mall shooter. >> you won't find anyone in law enforcement that supports the idea that ordinary citizens whipping out guns in confined or chaotic situations and shooting. >> reporter: others argue that mass shootings are no excuse to disarm the public. >> the vast majority of people who use guns to defd themselves never report it to the police because they were not injured they didn't lose their property. >> reporter: statistically less than one 10th of one percent of all homicides in the united states are called by mass shootings. half of the gunman did have mental health issues, which you know is a subject of debate in washington. jenna: part of the priorities they say of the tax force at hand. we'll see what comes from it. interesting study to take a look at here. this is very much a federal issue but it's also a state issue when we talk about gun control and gun laws. we are getting word now th

of what this debate is all about. let's go to teresa, joining us from north las vegas nevada. the democrat line. caller: good morning. i wanted to call in support of the president and democrats. i am a progressive and in independent thinker. i do not think you should use the 14th amendment, unless it comes to a really economic crash. i am for raising the debt ceiling. i believe that we need to pay our bills. i have to pay my bills. if i do not pay my credit card bills, my credit rating goes down. my credit score goes down. and i pay more in interest in the future. i think it is very irresponsible of these tea party republicans to hold the country hostage. there are other issues that can be negotiated for spending and raising revenues and the debt ceiling should not be a part of it. host: ok, thank you for calling. here is the editorial cartoonist of the post. the idea of minting a single coin valued at $1 trillion. using that to increase the debt limit. a number of stories saying that basically, this is not going to happen. his is what is reclined -- this -- what ezra kline writes he point

[inaudible] >> good to see you again. >> you mentioned keystone pipeline. i wonder if you have an assessment whether or not president obama will approve or reject the pipeline. if he does reject it what would the political consequences be? >> we are hopeful he will approve it. we're encouraged what we're learning from the white house the latest report coming out of the nebraska. the governor has to make a final decision there and advance it to the department of state. we're h
from a local nevada media outlet, the pbs station in las vegas. let's take a listen. >> we need to do is change the filibuster. we have things that are so stupid. if i want to get on a bill, i have to file -- lyndon johnson filed it once in his six years. i filed it 390 some odd times. so we've got to change that. if you invoke that on a piece of legislation, people get 30 hours to sit around and do nothing. i want to get rid of that. i think we should not have the 30-hours post. and i think that we have to make sure that on a regular piece of legislation, if somebody wants to continue objecting to it after it's been invoked they should have to stand and talk. there should be a talking filibuster. >> okay. so there's -- can you explain this 30-hour thing? i think that -- in the grand scheme of things is the most egregious which is, you know, filibustering the motion to proceed and then, there's this weird kind of period after you filibuster with motion to proceed where it's mandated no one can do anything? >> well, there are two familiar low periods. first is when eye file the 16 sena
democrat from nevada will discuss his first war priorities and issues before the congress, including spending, immigration, and gun control. he is all about congressman lee terry, republican from nebraska. he will be here to talk about the decision by a state governor to approve the rerouting of the keystone pipeline through his state and the potential economic impact. that is like 7:00 a.m. eastern every day on c-span. >> c-span, created by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> former imf chief economist said tuesday that the debt ceiling debate and debt and deficit talks should be separate. mr. johnson testified before the house and the ways and means committee on a panel that included the former staff director of the senate budget committee. this is two hours, 10 minutes. >> in the audience, take a seat. we are expecting votes, so we will get started. the chairman is on his way and he will be landing in a couple minutes, but we will get started. good afternoon. welcome to the hearing on the debt limit. he asked we go

actually think the president was remarkably tempered in nevada, and less partisan than usual. so i'm modestly encouraged. i don't personally believe, and i've said it over and again, that a comprehensive bill can pass. i think that it's too hard. i think that you could pass seven or eight bills that together form a comprehensive reform. my advice to the house republicans would be, start passing bills. you don't have to hang on -- >> jeb bush says that's impractical and he wrote that article last week in the "wall street journal." he says, go for the comprehensive, don't do it peace mie meal. >> look -- well, i have great respect for jeb bush, but i believe that in this city, what you end up with is 11:00 at night, in the white house, six people in secret, writing a bill they don't know anything about, dumping stuff in the bill at the last minute. it is the worst possible form of legislation. they ought to hold hearings -- first of all, let's hold hearings. let's get out in the open. >> they will be holding hearings, and they'll be introduced -- quickly, are you with marco rubio or
